Description

In cooperation with farmsupport, ROPA has created a planter for pre-sprouted potatoes. Gecko, the new hand planter from ROPA, combines gentle planting of pre-sprouted potatoes without breaking the sprouts with high effectiveness and good working conditions for the personnel. Two operators work on each planting row. They put the sprouted potatoes lengthwise on the gentle and protective belts, which convey potatoes without any further stress and grinding contact until the tubers are deposited precisely in the soil. This technology allows optimal planting of potatoes with up to 12 cm length at a driving speed of 3.5 km/h. The distance between plants can be variably adjusted in 16 stages. Planting without breaking the sprouts After two years of field trials and use on farms specialized in new potato cultivation, we can confirm that the desired advantages in yield and vegetation have been achieved. The ROPA Gecko can be ordered for the 2024 planting season and will be displayed at the Agritechnica 2023. USER-FRIENDLY TECHNOLOGY, PRECISE DEPOSITING AND EFFICIENT ORGANIZATION OF BOXES The ROPA Gecko provides space for 5 pallets for efficient logistics of the planting material. Moreover, ROPA also offers other options such as a protective roof, drawbar steering, tramline deactivation and more for even greater convenience. Loading space The four-row planter can be loaded with up to 4 full pallets on which the pre-sprouted potatoes are stored in boxes and has some additional storage space for the empty boxes
